cast:
Christopher Reeve, Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s the original superhero movie! In 1978, Richard Donner resurrected the Superman legacy with a smash hit that transformed the comic book movie into a form that could be both serious and self-referentially comic. His secret power? A handsome, then-mostly unknown actor — and Cornell grad — named Christopher Reeve ’74, who was able to perfectly capture the aw-shucks godliness of the Man of Steel as well as the awkward clumsiness of his alter-ego, Clark Kent. Rounded out by an excellent supporting cast of Margot Kidder as Lois Lane and Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor, Superman: The Movie “is a pure delight.” (Roger Ebert)
